What are crowded teeth?
Crowded teeth are a very common and obvious problem. Teeth overlap and can even become twisted when there isn’t enough room for them in the mouth.
What causes crowded teeth?
Having a jaw that is naturally too small to fit all of your teeth will result in some crowding. Your teeth are also inclined to keep shifting forward in your mouth as you age.
What happens if you don’t fix crowded teeth?
Crowded teeth are hard to clean between. This makes them prone to collecting dental debris which puts them at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, crowded and twisted teeth can quickly wear down and fracture.
How to correct crowded teeth
A clear aligner like Reveal is a safe and simple way to correct tooth crowding. Remember to wear your retainer after treatment to prevent your teeth from reverting back to their crowded positions.
